The response was overwhelming.

"And the next thing you know, all of Oklahoma City, Norman and Moore have decided to come out and say hello," Hosek remarked, noting that the eatery made a week's sales in just one day.

The restaurant, enjoying a stellar 4.9/5 stars rating on Google, offers hot dogs named after family members, each with a unique family signature.

Hosek was delighted by the turnout, which only led to a shortage of one sauce amidst the increased demand.
